Fences and enclosures are valuable accessories for the garden or for the safety of a construction site. For this reason, we will also highlight the importance of having good ribbed inserts for fences and for enclosures.
One of the biggest problems with both fences and enclosures is the posts. And it is that, after years of exposure to the elements, especially the tops of the posts are often broken, or rotten. That’s where fencing inserts and fence enclosure inserts come in.
Install them when you install your new fence or enclosure, and you can enjoy your investment for many more years!
What are the ribbed inserts for fences and the ribbed inserts for enclosures?
Fence ribbed inserts are a cover that goes over the top of posts on a deck or fence. Most people think of post caps as a decorative item. In that sense, we manufacture them in two colours, white and black. Black is the most common colour because it goes with everything, while white is less common, as it is often difficult to match when replacing fencing ribbed inserts.
The ribbed inserts for the fences and their posts also come in a variety of material options. Wood used to be one of the most popular materials in the old days, but like posts, wooden ribbed inserts could quickly rot and were prone to splitting, fungal growth and damage from pests. The fencing ends that we manufacture based on low-density polypropylene (LDPE) are a better alternative, as they will stand the test of time because they are particularly more resistant to UV rays.
Ribbed inserts for fences and ribbed inserts for enclosures: materials
In a previous post we have explained the importance of the materials in the manufacture of ribbed inserts for fences and for enclosures. In this one, we will stop at the more sustainable materials. And it is that we design ribbed inserts with the end of its useful life in mind. Whether the part is a single or multiple use item, we consider the optimal materials and design, which can be easily recycled. The most recycled plastics are PELD (Low Density Polyethylene).
Ribbed inserts for fences and ribbed inserts for enclosures are more than just a finish
The trailing end is the most vulnerable part of a fence post or fence post. In wet weather, the tops of the posts will absorb more water than any other part of the post. This leads to the growth of mold, fungus and moss and eventually rot. The tops of fence posts are also more exposed to sun and wind, which dries out the wood and causes it to crack.
The ribbed inserts for fences and the end caps for enclosures solve all those problems by protecting posts from the elements. Your fences and fences will not only last much longer but will also be more secure. Since the rough edges remain hidden under the lid, it is unlikely that you will be injured by a splinter. In addition, depending on the ferrules you choose, they also offer valuable protection against birds and other wildlife.
How to choose fencing inserts or fencing inserts
Before you commit to a certain size, get out a tape measure and double check the measurements. You’ll want to make sure that the new ribbed inserts for fences or for enclosures fit snugly, but not lose or too tight. Keep in mind that when post caps are tight around the post, there is a risk of post cap breakage. This happens because wood or metal expand or dilate with changes in temperature or the passage of time. Not only that, but a snug fit will not allow ambient moisture to evaporate, which can cause posts to rot and rust more quickly.
The ribbed inserts for the closures are not just for decoration. They are also a wonderful way to keep terraces and fences in good condition for a long time. It’s a small price to pay for something that can add years to the life of your investment.
